Hey all,

Thanks for taking time to read my post and offer assistance.

I have scanned the problem computer with just about everything you can imagine.
However, there is no spyware found (other then DSO exploits but i have sp2 with all updates) and i have done online scans from McAfee, Symantec and others.

Still the problem is there in i.e. Under Tools , Internet options , Connections , Lan Settings, "Proxy Server" has the following information: "use proxy server is selected and enabled, and the proxy address is 127.0.0.1 port 8080

This setting seems to somehow disable the local virus scanner (McAfee 8.0) and its update ability. Also some web pages will not load, instead I am directed to http://www.worldtracker.biz

This setting returns every time on reboot. I can remove the setting manually and the computer seems to "act normal".

I have run the following programs on the problem computer.

Ad-Aware SE
Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plug-In
CCleaner
Spybot
Spybot - Search and Destroy DSO Exploit Fix
SpywareBlaster
McAfee AVERT Stinger
CWShredder
